I am a Senior Research Associate and Laboratory Manager in the Food Systems Integrity team. I specialize in Microbiology and Molecular Biology with my current focus on Anaerobic Microbiology and DNA extraction methodologies.
My passion for science saw me complete my BSc and MSc at the University of Otago. I have been at AgResearch for 17 years and have previously worked in the Infectious Diseases and Rumen Microbiology teams before joining my present team in 2017.
